Airbus Helicopters, Vector Aerospace and Rockwell Collins sign Pro Line Fusion cockpit upgrade agreement

Airbus Helicopters, Vector Aerospace and Rockwell Collins have entered into an agreement to jointly develop and market the scalable and flexible Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics solution to upgrade Airbus Helicopters platforms.

“Pro Line Fusion provides Airbus Helicopters with one of the most advanced avionics and the highest level of efficiency for the rotary wing cockpit,” said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The enhanced situational awareness features provided by Pro Line Fusion will result in reduced pilot workload and greatly increase flight safety for operators of Airbus Helicopters platforms.”

The first platforms targeted for the upgrades will be AS332 / 532 MK1 helicopters, with the first implementation expected in the summer of 2016.

“In our constant search for customer satisfaction, we have identified the need to offer modern but affordable glass cockpit retrofit solutions to our customers to allow them to extend the operational life of their helicopters. Entering in this cooperative agreement with Vector Aerospace and Rockwell Collins to develop a state-of-the-art upgrade solution for the existing fleet of AS332 / 532 MK1 using Pro Line Fusion will allow us to answer this need in a competitive way,” said Matthieu Louvot,  senior vice president, Customer Services for Airbus Helicopters.
